“The Joy”, a worship poem from L.Willows (See Jesus, Holiness of God, God’s Peace)

The Joy

We live for, we love for
The times that Joy seeks
Hope in the prayers,
In the dreams that we keep.

Whispered in the twilight,
Held through the night,
Born in bright trails
of starlight’s deep sleep.

Here is the peace of
Holy- Love’s send.
Season, the deep dive
that tenders the soul’s mend.

Hope, in the night winds
carried by Dawn’s song.
Soft comes the Light
that The Joy brings along.

“With A Love That Outlasts”, A worship Poem from L.Willows (God’s Love, Everlasting, God’s Peace)

With a Love That Outlasts

The evening shifts, the clouds reform.
I watch a passing storm transform.
Like the heart through seasons of,
this, the life that journeys Love. 

In the beauty of God’s wondrous heart.
There we fasten, there we start.
Such are the oceans that open invite,
in mysterious bidding and joyous delight.

In the calm of His peace that stills our all.
There, hearts rest. Therein, souls are called.
God everlasting, in the deep silence caste,
He fills every heart with a Love that outlasts.

Wrapped in God’s Nature

Heart curves to the Face of such beauty seen,
His Nature’s sweet bidding upon tender lights gleaned,
easing all burdens and the graspings that lean,
in the ancient cathedral of God’s sweet serene.

Come close and allow us to breathe all of You
Love blesses each morning that sprinkles Your dew,
I pray into Your wonders as they wrap us full through,
Your Hidden – what Beauty! We are safe in Your pew.

The Heavens fly through in the treetop’s soft swing.
The Cathedral is hushed by the joy of our King.
Wrapped in His nature, the Peace of God sings.
And loved in Forever, we rejoice worshiping.

One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple. Psalm 27:4

Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; They will behold a far-distant land.
Isaiah 33:17

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
Psalm 96:11-12
